[DML] Re: Checked my TABs.... AARG!!

If you are still concerned you can install Bauerle's safety support 
kit - if he is still makes it (cost I don't remember - which means 
it was probably not too high). I installed one on one of my cars 
years ago for peace of mind when I drove a 5 speed hard every day. 
If a bolt was ever going to break the trailing arm was not going to 
drop on the ground with the kit on the car.

I auto crossed a DeLorean on several occasions (years ago - long 
before Togy-tabs, which I have now). I burned up the brakes, ruined 
tires, broke the trans, but never bent a trailing arm bolt driving 
the car. I did bend one once on a road construction pothole that I 
couldn't miss. The hit broke the muffler bracket over the alternator 
too it was so violent. A stock new bolt - say one year old. Bent it 
slightly. I think the worry is over done. Proper installation and 
maintenance is what is required. If you are uncertain of the 
installation or when the bolts were last checked - then worry - and 
find a DeLorean vendor or someone who understands the setup to pull 
the maintenance for you.
